    Yeah, I know that fisheyes generally have a bad reputation due to over use, but I like ’em, and someone was selling an immaculate one on Craigslist for about $50 less than I can get it from B&H, and no shipping (plus the whole instant gratification thing).

    The other reason I wanted it, is because the ultra-wide options for Nikon don’t exactly lend themselves to the less expensive side of the house.

    Anyhow, I ended up shooting a friend’s band on Saturday night, and then went club shooting on Sunday:

    I love my 10.5mm. I found it great for concerts too (the high aperture is a bonus!). It is nice for getting group photos without having to go to the back of the room.

    /That and getting photos of those friends that don’t like being in photos as they don’t realise it can shoot 180 degrees 😀

    I likes ’em too ! My Peleng 8mm fisheye lens has become a welcome addition to the bag…..It takes some getting used to, and the keeper ratio is low, but the results are fun !….Get fishy with it !! 8)

    Good stuff, 3Horn…

    Enjoy !
